Yes, they should have a right because where else would they go? They can't go to their home country, because nobody's there! Also, the person can't even get a drivers license, so what would they do? They can't go to college, NOTHING! Even though it's "breaking the law" what are you going to do with the people? NOTHING!
Why not? Okay they weren't born here but they only came here because they must of had a reason to come. No one leaves their own country just for the heck of it. They must of had to because of money shortages, government, or country tension. Why should they not get the right if they were born in another country. I mean we weren't from America originally but we pushed out Indians and made room for all of us. They could have been you don't get to own land because you came here second and we came here first. Simple.
In the United States, we have a path to citizenship, and an immigration policy, that needs to be maintained in order to be fair to people who are citizens of all countries. As an example, the United States has a limit on how many people can be from each country (7% per country). Changing things to make it easier for illegal immigrants to become citizens is unfair to those who enter the country legally. It also would encourage more people to enter the United States illegally, knowing that they will easily gain citizenship.
The immigrants who came here legally should have an advantage. Not the people who came here illegally. This is a question of justice. Those who come here legally should get the advantage, or the status quote. Shouldn't the people who come here illegally get punished for it, or at least given the status quote?
1. Illegal immigrants have already broken U.S. Immigration law by crossing the border illegally. Title 8 U.S. Code section 1325 defines crossing illegally as Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2) eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers, or (3) attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact. Why should we extend the right of citizenship in our country to a criminal who has willingly broken the law?
